My experience as an Intern for IT4Causes has been pretty good so far. I have been able to be involved in tasks that I had never done before. I went to my first Project assessment meeting with Tom at Virginia Interfaith. I really learned a lot in that meeting. I didn’t realize how detailed a project assessment meeting would be. Tom covered all of the concerns they might have from security to website designing. I learned a great deal about finding the smallest problems a client might have in that meeting.
I recently had a one-on-one with Tom regarding my goals and aspirations with IT4Causes and my long term goals in general. Tom pointed out the resources I could use to help achieve my goals which was very helpful. I am interested in database management, cyber security and web designing. We also recently started a project in Salesforce, which I excited to start learning.
I think I am going to get a lot out from this internship. I appreciate the fact that Tom cares about our personal goals and tries to provide us with projects that match with our goals.
IT4Causes has been a great experience so far. I find this internship both valuable and rewarding because it is getting me more familiar with the IT workplace, and the fact that IT4Causes works for nonprofit organizations provides me satisfaction in knowing that my efforts are helping out those who are in need. From this internship I hope to gain more IT experience and figure out which way I want to further my career path. I can’t wait to see what else is in store for me and my fellow interns!
